Understanding Interceptive Care
Children start out with baby or primary teeth. These teeth are smaller than permanent teeth but play an important role in overall dental health. The primary teeth are essential for holding the proper amount of space so that permanent teeth can grow in the right position. That is why it is so important to teach your children how to clean and care for their baby teeth.
A dentist can help your child learn the right techniques for maintaining oral health. An orthodontist can also help your child’s smile by determining a treatment plan to ensure an attractive and healthy smile. Interceptive care provides earlier care by starting orthodontic treatment when children have a combination of primary and permanent teeth. This type of treatment is ideal for reducing treatment times, achieving great results, and enhancing facial growth.
